European Smart Gas Meter Market Size, Share, Forecast, Analysis, Industry Report

Posted by mansi on February 17th, 2020

Europe is a significant contributor to the global smart gas meter market growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. In Europe, regional directives and national regulations are the key factors to drive the growth of the smart gas meter market. In particular, the Third Energy Package, and the 2009 Electricity and Gas Directives, which are aimed at liberalizing the electricity and gas markets to enable consumer participation and improve transparency, require suppliers to improve the frequency and accuracy of meter reading and billing and provide consumers with better access to consumption information. The 2009 Gas Directive require member states to carry out a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for smart gas meters by September 2012.

However, in contrast to the Electricity Directive, which requires that 80% of consumers should have smart electricity meters by 2020, the Gas Directive does not specify how many consumers should have smart meters or provide a deadline for deployments following a positive CBA. This lack of enforceable EU regulations has contributed to the slower approach in gas, and several EU members states are yet to submit their CBAs for gas.
